Gabriela Teran, M.A., CF-SLP is a bilingual (English/Spanish) speech-language pathologist with extensive experience serving pediatric and adult populations in a variety of settings including schools, private  clinics, and hospitals. Gabriela graduated from Boston University with a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Speech Language and Hearing Sciences in 2020, and she received a Master of Arts (MA) in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of Maryland in 2024. She has completed specialized training in diagnosing and treating multicultural populations through UMD’s Cultural and Linguistic Diversity Emphasis Program and the Bilingual Certification Program. She grew up in Nicaragua, is a native speaker of Spanish and English, and is extremely passionate about providing culturally responsive care to bilingual individuals with varying communication disorders.

In between her undergraduate and graduate studies, Gabriela worked as a Speech Language Pathology Assistant (SLPA) where she gained extensive experience working with students with dyslexia, articulation and phonological disorders, fluency disorders, and receptive/expressive language impairments. During her time as an SLPA, she collaborated to create support groups and developed a Spanish tutoring program for children with dyslexia. Within her graduate degree, she had the opportunity to complete her clinical outplacements at The River School and the DC VA Medical Hospital where she gained experience working with children with cochlear implants and adults with a variety of neurological disorders, respectively. Through these experiences, she has learned the importance of inter-professional collaboration and advocacy to provide patient-centered holistic care.

Gabriela’s main professional goals are to provide equitable and individualized bilingual services to members of the community and increase access to culturally and linguistically competent services.
